it says to the public. what is says is the romney you see an stage in a debate or national convention or tv ad is saying one thing. but the romney behind closed doors when he thinks is there is no press in the room is saying different. >> i don't know about that. it depends on the date. sometimes he says one thing one day and one thing another. it's public and private. the 47 percent of the important point proves your point, mike, which is there hasn't been priorities did an ad on the 47% thing. but you have seen -- but small media this terms of dollar spent. the amount of voters nationwide who know about because of the media coverage in a presidential race it's remarkable. there were, i think begin pee yak did a lot of surveys that tested whether or not people heard about the 47 percent in the swing state. and the numbers were high. and so, i mean, that's the thing. and do think it was em blaymatic people built in on the feelings. romney isn't like me. he doesn't get me or the middle class. and that one comment capsulated it all. >> and -- he was talking from like a political strateg

and romney are arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion in this country on how we slash medicare spending because if we don't, um, i believe that we're going to find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapse as a result of continuing to borrow and spend money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar that we spend. >> host: so what are you seeing out there on that particular issue? what's your prescription, pardon the expression. >> guest: well, i oversaw the reform of medicaid in new mexico when i was governor of new mexico. we took it from a fee-for-service model to a managed care model. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars, we set up better health care networks for the poor in new mexico. i believe if the federal government would have block granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, done away with all the strings and the mandates that i could have effectively overseen the delivery of health care to the poor. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal gov

alfred doblin. >> senator menendez, last night featured in the debate, governor romney talked to the shifting people currently under the age of 55 to a voucher like program for health care when they reach age 65. president obama's affordable care act doesn't offer a truly long-term fix to medicare. so what is your plan to keep medicare solid while not forcing seniors to fend for themselves? menendez: from the medicare is not an esoteric debate. my mom who worked in the factories of new jersey, worked really hard to get us into the middle-class in the triad of her life she was fighting alzheimer's. medicare was her health care security. it made a difference with her to live in the dignity she deserved. that's why under the affordable care act extended the life of medicare until 2024. and that is why we will continue to work to look at various proposals that will continue to extend the life of medicare. some of what we did is beginning to eliminate the waste, fraud and abuse. but as part of what extent of the life of medicare, by stopping over payments to insurance companies pro

package and said he would go to the debate unless there was a bailout package. so in the middle of all this, we didn't know if john mccain would show up on the night. so that's september. and that romney has now had a tough month. it is september. people ask mala time, what do you think? what is going to happen? i would say it's pretty early. if you think about it, the 18 day sound like a lifetime to me. so he's got two lifetimes. it was like 40 days. a lot can happen on the campaign trail between now and the end.
